UPDATE: It’s confirmed, Shelton will be with Mariners on Thursday.

UPDATE: Expect to see Shelton in Seattle tomorrow. No word on who will be sent down.

Well, I’m at a horrifically boring Rainiers game tonight and Chris Shelton, who was 1-for-3 going into the ninth inning as the DH, and surprisingly, he was pinch hit for in his last at-bat by Prentice Redman.

Yes the game is 7-1, but Shelton being pinch hit for? Hmmmm.

We talked earlier today that the Mariners would most likely make a roster move and send a pitcher down and bring up a bench player. Garrett Olson pitched well out of the bullpen, Jason Vargas started today and Shelton pinch hit for? If I had to give guess on the move it would be Vargas being sent down and Shelton being called up. But that’s just a guess.
